Leeds Domestic Violence and Abuse

Practitioners - Training

Leeds City Council’s Domestic Violence Team delivers a range of training:

• Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARACs) - 1.5 hour briefing
• Support and Challenge; Adolescent to Parent Abuse for family support workers, youth workers etc. - full day

We support agencies to achieve the Leeds Domestic Violence Quality Mark, a quality assurance standard for responding to domestic violence. The aim of the Quality Mark is to ensure consistency and high minimum standards of service. All our training is free to agencies working towards the Quality Mark.

We also deliver training specifically for Children’s Social Work Service and a variety of training for health professionals.
